Marvel is truly kicking ass in the television department first we learned Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders are coming to Netflix this year, then Daredevil has been renewed for a third season also on Netflix, and now Ghost Rider is returning to Marvel via Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! Yep, the Spirit of Vengeance is back and ready to deal out his own brand of justice in the next season of the hit series. Do you think Coulson, Daisy, May, and the others are ready to deal with a supernatural threat? Well we are about to see on September 20th, and from the looks of the logo things are about to heat up!
Eighties babies everywhere can truly rejoice! Once again the gods of nostalgia have worked their magic which means another reboot its on it way to television! This time around it is Disney’s turn; and they have recently announced the debut of a new television series and line of comic books based on DuckTales! As you many of you may recall, DuckTales centers around the ultra-rich, Scrooge McDuck and his three grandnephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, as they go on adventures around the world and protect his fabled Money Bin!
The characters will definitely have updated appearances as the series will be produced by Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse) with Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder). You can check out some of the artwork teased from the first set of comics entitled “DuckTales Cinestory Volume 1.” It recounts the events of the first five episodes of the original TV series, and will be sold at nationwide beginning September 20th! The television series will debut on Disney XD sometime in 2017.
We definitely need to correct a statement in a previous post. Netflix did release a teaser trailer for Marvel’s street level strong man, Luke Cage (Mike Colter). As you may already know, Luke Cage, also known as “Power Man,” is not only superhumanly strong, but has unbreakable skin due to an experiment he volunteered for in prison. Well in his Marvel Cinematic Universe origins he has the same powers and was introduced as a supporting character and love interest for Jessica Jones in her series of the same name.
Netflix announced last year its plans for a solo series based on Luke, we are just glad to see it come to fruition. With Iron Fist, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones on Netflix’s roster, and The Defenders coming soon Marvel is more than proving its mettle on the small screen! Check out the teaser trailer for Luke Cage below!
We definitely love this trailer! Unlike Iron Fist and The Defenders’ trailers it really shows Luke in action. Those feats of strength and that unbreakable skin are truly potent weapons in the war on crime. We wonder who the villain for the first season will be. Historically, Luke’s rogues’ gallery has not been politically correct. Mahershalalhashbaz Ali is set to play Cornell ‘Cottonmouth’ Stokes, a notorious drug lord with his own set of superhuman abilities–sharp teeth and strength equal to Luke’s! This is going to be one helluva a mash up! Check back here for episode recaps beginning September 30th! The world is ready for a bulletproof black man!””
If it has not been made apparent to the world at large, Marvel and Netflix are a match made in heaven! First, they introduced the world to Daredevil and Jessica Jones via their own original series and now the match is striking again twice with series based on the martial artist and superhero, Iron Fist, and The Defenders, a loose knit team of heroes that will consist of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist!
First we begin with Danny Rand, aka “Iron Fist.” This hero is a trained warrior who can harness his own chi energy to coat his fists making them powerful enough to punch through nearly anything! When Netflix first announced the series an Asian actor was rumored to be cast as the titular hero, but it seems from the teaser trailer they have stuck to the characters Caucasian, traditional roots. Check it out below!
The trailer looks awesome! Clearly, Danny is in for the fight of his life while we explore his origins. We wonder what his costume will look like though!
Some of the best films in the world are indie ones! Think about it. Hit films like City of God (2002), The Rabbit Proof Fence (2002), and My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) are all indie films that have been critically acclaimed and proven there is life beyond traditional Hollywood studio films. The indie world now has another hit in the making when Bollywood and Caribbean culture collide in the upcoming film, Bazodee!

Anita Ponchouri (Natalie Perera), the dutiful Indian daughter of a deep in debt businessman (Kabir Bedi) is about to marry a wealthy Londoner (Staz Nair) when a chance encounter with Soca singer, Lee de Leon (Soca music superstar Machel Montano in his film debut) sets things askew. In search of a muse, de Leon agrees to perform at the engagement party for both families. Unable to deny their mutual attraction, Anita must now choose between the answer to her family’s financial prayers and the possibility of real love.
Set on the vivid, colorful islands of Trinidad & Tobago and pulsing with the sensuous dance rhythms of Soca music, Bazodee is the new-style Bollywood musical with a distinctly Caribbean island flavor. BAZODEE is a feel-good, 2016 HOW STELLA GOT HER GROOVE BACK with a few unexpected twists.
Montano is having a big 2016! He will be the headlining act for Drake’s upcoming OVO Fest in Toronto this summer, and he recently shared the main stage at Coachella with Major Lazer. Montano, “King of Soca”, is bring the fun, Caribbean heat to America.This movie and Machel are giving Trinidad a modern, fresh appeal and reminding us what it was like to love freely.
This film looks and sounds amazing, check out the trailer below! It sort of reminds us of a foreign version of Mississippi Masala (1991). Indian and Caribbean culture are so different, but at the same time both are colorful and vivacious. When you add forbidden love, romance, and amazing music you just can’t go wrong!
Mona Scott Young, creator and executive producer of the Love & Hip-Hop franchise has definitely gotten her money’s worth of drama out of this latest cast and season of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta.The funny thing is the most noteworthy moments of this have been occurring off camera! Sas got shot in the back of the head, KK has charges pending against her, and the feud between Stevie J and Joseline has become epic! Now it is newcomer Tommie Lee’s turn. Apparently, she was arrested earlier this week and has accused a few of Atlanta policemen of beating her!
Tommie uploaded–and then deleted–dashcam footage of the incident to Instagram where she claimed she was brutalized. The Atlanta Police Department (APD) have called foul on her allegations and TMZ has acquired the police report.
According to the police report — obtained by TMZ — when deputies pulled the Jeep over in the ATL area they noticed lots of movement in the vehicle.
Deputies say the guy in the driver’s seat first lied, but then admitted he had switched with Tommie — who jumped in the back.
That would explain why deputies wanted Tommie out of the backseat. They demanded she step out of the vehicle several times, but she held her ground. Deputies then pulled her out and hooked her up.
Cops say Tommie’s eyes were watery, bloodshot and her speech was slurred, so she was booked for drunk driving, disorderly conduct and driving on an expired license.
And, for bad measure, she peed herself in the cruiser on the way to the station.
Tommie tells us the police report is BS, and insists she did nothing wrong. On the peeing … she blames deputies for not taking her to a bathroom.
With everything we have seen from Tommie this season we can definitely see her acting a fool–even with the cops!Also, the show does mention she has a drinking problem multiple times. We just hope she has not embellished anything in this story. There are actual victims, living and dead, of police brutality. Now is not the time for their pain to be trivialized by one girl who had a little too much to drink. Check out the dashcam footage below and tell us what you think of this incident. Was Tommie brutalized or not? Comment below!
Actor, singer, dancer, and heart throb—there seems to be nothing Trevor Jackson can’t do! For nearly a decade now, this amazingly talented young man has won the hearts, minds, and admiration of millions; using his God given skills and devilishly enticing good looks. Most remember Trevor from his time on Disney Channel’s original movie, Let It Shine, SyFy’s Eureka, and the hit series, Austin & Ally, where he played Austin Moon’s rival and Trish De la Rosa’s ex-boyfriend, Trent. “I’ve been blessed to be consistently working and I’m really appreciative of my time at Disney…I’ve had a lot of fun acting and getting to work with different people, it’s been nothing short of a great experience.”
Whereas many child stars (including Disney ones), have faded to obscurity, Trevor continues to climb in fame and popularity, and has moved onto more mature roles. This is a feat not so easily attained by most child stars. In fact, the transition into adulthood tends to have a negative effect on their careers and viability. His most recent, major television role, occurred on ABC’s award winning drama, American Crime, as “Kevin LaCroix,” a student and basketball player caught in the middle of a scandal at a prestigious private school. There two of his teammates sexually assault another student. “It was great being a part of the show. We dealt with some really serious social issues. Getting to work alongside Regina [King] and Andre [“Andre 3000” of “Outkast”] was really cool, they’re both legends. I learned a lot from them. Regina is just amazing she has been in the industry for years and just seeing how professional she is and how she always delivers… Andre is fun and I grew up listening to his music so I really liked working with him…” Trevor’s role on the show has been critically acclaimed, compelling audiences to see him for the rising star he is.
